Meet Audrey


Audrey is a new machine that I first saw at Material Girls last month--cute little machine, lots of functions, and on sale! Then last week, the dealer sent a postcard that the demo machines were being cleared out. Hmmm...

So I went by on Friday, tried her and picked her up for $365! She's a nice little travel machine with lots more features than the Janome Gem I also have. Actually, there are even some features my Bernina doesn't have. So I expect to be using her for travel and classes, and as a buttonhole and invisible zipper station.

Today, I've been playing around with the skirt I bought on the Santa Fe tour. I took the lower flounce off, an improvement, and now I'm trying to even up the skirt and the lining. Both are very uneven.

I also have another modified Butterick 4194 cut out and ready to go. This one is a linen blend with an embroidered border design.

Here's my latest picture of Smudge. He was enjoying the sunshine coming through the bedroom window this morning, and was so cute I couldn't resist a portrait.

The Xscape is a great little machine - I just love it with it's little travel bag! I know you'll enjoy taking it to classes with you.

The new machine is kewl! ButI think I was overcome with jealousy at the buttonhole/invisible zipper station...*sigh*

I've been looking for a light weight machine to take to classes-this one might just fit the bill! Hope that I can find as good a deal as you did.

Great machine! Congratulations! Your cat is beautiful. He's pretty close in color to the carpet. Looks like he could get stepped on easily!

This is the Mini Cooper of machines, so stylish.

Can you believe I have the Singer Featheweight my Mom bought me in high school? Sews a straight stitch forward and back, that's it. A good match for my skills. And that camo skirt is delicious!
